Students in a Global Study of Wildlife Migration and Seasonal Change
Students Across the North America
Over 890,000 students at 38,000 sites
are participating in the 2010/2011 Journey North program. These students
are from all 50 U.S. States and 7 Canadian Provinces.

Track Wildlife Migration and Spring's Journey North
The journeys of a dozen migratory species are tracked each spring. Students
share their own field observations with classrooms across the Hemisphere.
In addition, students are linked with scientists who provide their expertise
directly to the classroom. Several migrations are tracked by satellite
telemetry, providing live coverage of individual animals as they migrate.
As the spring season sweeps across the Hemisphere, students note changes
in daylight, temperatures and all living things as the food chain comes
back to life.
The Journey North program extends for four months each year, with
live inter-active programming from approximately February 2 until June
1. You can help collect data about a dozen different migrations and signs
of spring beginning each February.
Preparations in the Fall
Spring is the focus of the Journey North program, but the fall "Journey
South" feature helps convey the cyclical nature of the seasons. The
full year's investigation of natural events and cycles help teachers incorporate
inquiry-based teaching and learning into the curriculum.
On the Internet
Free access to Journey North is available on this Web site. In addition,
the program is delivered by e-mail to those who select this additional
option during registration.

Journey North is an independent 501(C)3 organization. Our website is based
in Washington, D.C.--but none of us lives there! Like magic, we manage
the website from various points on the globe, as shown on this
map. We're spread across 17 time zones, 4 states, 2 continents and
2 countries. But, at the end of each day, the migration news has been
gathered from you and from scientists across North America. We thought
you'd enjoy a peek behind the scenes. >>
